If you’re gonna cheat, you might as well do it on the cheap. That seems to be the going line of thought among would-be cheaters in games like Counter-Strike, who risk losing access to games and even their accounts if they get caught. Valve, however, has caught on to the loophole.

The day after this year’s big Steam Summer Sale wrapped up, Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) auto-detected a whopping 40,411 cheating accounts, according to Steam Database (via Dot Esports). That’s a record high, making the previous October 2016 record of 15,227 look like some dude in his pajamas with a fly swatter compared to a crack team of exterminators


Brilliant..

This is a wide spread problem on PC. PC is not ready for the digital generation at all with these draconian, unstoppable business practices.

:hehe:

Give it a few hours and the guy will forward the email from his brother detailing how he set up his cheating ring with the help of the Russian government.
